Win a play kitchen at Jolly Mom


My 2 year old and 5 year old love to play cooking. They pretend to have a restaurant and come get my order and come back with a tray (really a lid from a plastic storage box) on their hand and play food on it. They bring me a check and sometimes decline my credit card (where did they learn that??? I can assure you mine does not get declined on me!) etc. We play this almost everyday. The problem is they don't even have a play kitchen. Sometimes they will use my daughter's desk compartment as a stove! Great imaginations but I would love a real play kitchen for them (real play is that right to say??). I entered to win the Step 2 one above at Jolly mom. I suggest you do too if you have some little ones that need one!

Win an activity ball at Two of a Kind


SOmetimes its hard to decide on toys for babies. Its not like they can really give you much feedback when it comes to choosing or that they really have an opinion on what they want. Some toys bore them quickly. Others end up being long time favorites. I think this Hasbro Explore and Grow activity ball looks like a winner. At first this works as just a rattling entertainer. Later on the toy can be used by older babies to sort the shapes. I think Miliana would love it.

It is hard for an unsuspecting parent to discover that their child has been the victim of abuse. The following is a list of procedures to follow, to help offer support and encouragement towards the child's recovery.

When your child comes forward and tells you they have been the victim of child abuse:

1. Be sure to respond calmly to your child. Coming forward with something like this is really difficult for a child to do, so make sure you take the information with support and compassion for the child, not with shock and anger.


2. Be sure that your child is safe from further abuse. Making their environment safer will show the child that coming to you was the right decision.


3. Reassure your child that he/she is safe, that he/she made the right decision in telling you, and that you will help.


4. Let your child know that what has happened to him/her is in no way the child's fault.


5. If indicated, obtain the appropriate medical, emotional, and legal help for your child's needs.


6. Make sure other family members respect your child's privacy. Explicit details aren't necessary, only the information that this person in the family has had a bad experience and that it is now safe. Let the child lead the way in communicating about what has happened to him/her but give enough information to other children in the family to ensure their safety.


7. Try to follow normal routines around your home. Your child is still the same person as before and may need to have constant reassurance of this fact.


8. If your child has been abused, you will be dealing with some hard feelings of your own. If you need it, don't hesitate to seek professional help. It is hard to help your child if you are too upset yourself.


9. If the abuse in happening in the family, seek professional help. Keeping abuse a secret helps no one, and may even cause a recurrence.

As always in cases like this, make sure to put the child's needs first. The effects that this abuse can leave on the child can be devastating, but your active support and understanding will help make the road to recovery much easier.

Facts About Child Abuse

* 84 percent of prison inmates were abused as children.
* One in three girls and one in five boys are sexually abused by an adult at some time during childhood. (Most sexual abusers are someone in the family or someone the child knows, not the proverbial stranger with a lollipop.)
* Families with four or more children have higher rates of abuse and neglect, especially if their living conditions are crowded or they live in isolated areas.
* More than 80 percent of abusers are a parent or someone close to a child. Child abuse is far more likely to occur in the child's home than in a day care center.
* One in thirteen kids with a parent on drugs is physically abused regularly. (Drug and alcohol abuse in the family makes child abuse about twice as likely.)
* One out of ten babies born today are born to mothers who are abusing drugs. Drinking and smoking heavily during pregnancy also endangers the health of unborn children.
